    I suggest contacting a local attorney. It's hard to say what, if any, settlement could be reached. I would not sign any authorizations. Contact a local lawyer first and seek out their advice. You should be able to find lawyers with free consultations.

    I'd suggest contacting a personal injury attorney asap. You may, or may not, have medical payment coverage on your vehicle insurance which should help pay for medical bills right away to help you avoid bad debt. Inevitably, the other driver (or his insurance carrier) should be responsible for paying for your pain and suffering as well as medical bills.

  • Can I be charged with an MIP without a ticket or citation?

    I was at a small party, with maybe 15 people. I drank a beer, and just took a few sips out of a second when the cops show up. Some people ran and tried to hide, but I sat down in their clear view and stayed calm. I was respectful and honest the en...

    Timothy’s Answer

    If the party was in Greene County, the officer may be referring to a letter allowing you to go through a diversion class (it's an 8 hour class offered on Saturdays) to avoid being prosecuted. Whether the course is offered or not is up to the prosecuting attorney's office and if the class is not offered (or you decide not to attend), the prosecutor may still file charges. I would be glad to talk with you further if you'd like. 417-720-1098.
